“Dear Sibling,

I have upset you.
You feel I am unsupportive and inconsiderate.
Our offers for respite ‘holiday breaks’ in recent years have been refused due to ill-health, dogs, personal issues, working commitments, or pending births all revolving around other members of your family.
Our offers for taking over the Responsibility of Care full-time were refused in preference to you, because we were told
You cannot manage and need to be looked after.
Even when distance was not an issue, something or someone in your household always took priority over us.
You prefer to have no contact with me.

It has not been my intention to hurt anyone.
And just so that there is absolutely no misunderstanding here, I am not closing the door on your family.
I’m slamming it.
slamSo I suggest you remove your foot. “

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
